Hello Andre and everyone -
I think it is great that you are attempting to design a  
curriculum...that is something that schools and teachers really need.

Because I am not a teacher of children, I am not sure myself...I hope  
teachers of children will give you the feedback you need...everyone's  
feedback is welcome and needed...

 From what I can see in your ten documents, like this one page  
attached...that you have designed the curriculum so that the first  
three years in school...grades 1, 2 and 3, the children are  
handprinting the SW block letters...writing them as  
close to the way the symbols look printed, as much as possible, and  
then in later years, they start handwriting...this seems fine to me  
since that is the way it was for me when I learned to write English  
years ago in school...

...are you able to test it in your environment at the Deaf school,
